I was walking along the shoulder with the flow of traffic when I was struck by a car. Did I violate my ability to recover?

Frequently Asked Question Video for Wisconsin Personal Injury

In Wisconsin the rule is normally that a pedestrian should be walking facing the flow of traffic, therefore if you are walking with your back to the flow of traffic, you are negligent. However that negligence will not necessarily bar you from recovering in a pedestrian auto accident.
